An interesting "What if?" exercise for your students. What if the United States had agreed to extradite the Shah of Iran to stand trial in his homeland? Students will play out the roles of the Iranian Revolutionary Council, attorneys, and witnesses for the prosecution and the defense. This alternate history simulation demonstrates what a show trial would have most probably been like and how history might have turned out differently on the turn of a single event. This activity comes from an established educational author who has published numerous social studies curriculum books.
